inside pakistan in less than two weeks. the obama administration has begun 2013 with a flurry of drone attacks inside pakistan, raising speculation is accelerating the bombings before its capacity to carry them out is diminished with a planned withdrawal from afghanistan by the end of next year. according to a tally by the website long war journal, u.s. drones have already killed as many as 11 civilians and 30 suspected militants in the first 10 days of the year. if confirmed, that would mean a death ratio of more than one civilian for every three suspected militants. it would also already exceed the official civilian death toll for 2012, though that number is likely to small because u.s. policy deems all adult males as militants unless contrary evidence emerges after their deaths. according to the washington post, the future stationing of cia bases that launch the drone strikes will be among the topics discussed by the white house and afghan president karzai during karzai's current visit to washington. the obama administration has reportedly set its expectations low for passage of a n
there. it's an interesting tactic. make a quick point. the obama administration is selectively picks its issues it wants to go after and the one it doesn't. arizona decided they had their own immigration law. the department of justice says no, no, you can't do that. we'll sue you. arizona sues arizona. they will enforce the federal law, not the arizona law. pot in colorado, pot in washington state, you have your own law there. we'll look the other way on your law there. because they don't care about it. >> andrea: california. >> eric: not so much california. but the point they want guns. they want to go after guns so they will find a way, find an tissue go and really beef up the gun control. >> andrea: they also shrekively picked their allies, bob, right? >> bob: what administration doesn't pick issues they want to go after? >> eric: it esegregious. >> andrea: what about their allies? remember we listened to the left say wal-mart was evil, terrible now. they're partnering up with them? the nra was at the meeting today. they put out a statement. i know you have thoughts on it. here is wha
times progressives giving that withdrawal statement during the obama administration. i would be a distraction, et cetera. for a conservative to do it. wow! who are these legendary progressives who can get president obama to listen to them. as you can see from the presidential inaugural committee, they have listened in deed. if there's one progressive group that gets the job done, it is gay rights activists. god bless their heart. matt joins us in studio. there's a lot to discuss. how in the world does the gay rights community get so many successes politically? >> i think in this instance in particular, you saw the obama administration's desire not to have rick warren part two. that plagued him for weeks. weeks and weeks. and knowing how well the lbgt movement worked for the obama reelection campaign, there's no way they were interested in messing this up. there's a bottom line. lgbt helped get obama reelected and he knows that. >> cenk: i think you've hit on it exactly. that so how did they get him reelected? the lgbt community is strong, but not a high percentage of the vote
in the obama administration. labor secretary hilda soliz submitted resignation this afternoon saying after spending the holiday with her family she is ankious to get to her home in california. it's not clear when she will leave the labor department or who may be in line to replace her. tomorrow, they are set to nominate jack lew to be the treasuresy secretary. joining us to discuss this are familiar faces. karl rove from texas. and joe trippi in washington. thank you for being here. i want to break down battles one-by-one. the first one getting attention is chuck hagel for defense secretary. how big of a bat doll you think this is. where do you think it will play out? >> this is the biggest of the five nomination fights we know about. maybe a vote against hagel. few republicans, none come to his defense. few republicans might vote for him. he has a contentious personal background. hard, acerbic and hard to work with. more important than that is the record on the issues. opposed to iranian sanctions. he opposed the iraq surge. defended dialogue with hamas. refused to join in a letter callin
. the president and the obama administration does not want to use forcing a gains iran. but that option is e two. gun control. national and state. >> there is nothing that has pricked the consciousness of the american people, there's nothing that has gone to the heart of the matter more than the visual image people have of little six-year-old kids riddled -- not shot with a stray bullet, riddled, riddled, with bullet holes in their classroom. and the public demands we speak to the. >> this week in the wake of the shooting in newtown, connecticut, that left 20 elementary school children and six adults massacred, vice president joe biden and president obama's request, led a task force to address the broad, sensitive, and inflammatory issue of gun control. gun groups like the national rifle association, presented views to the biden task force which has addressed specific proposals. notably, reinstate the assault weapons ban that expired in 2004 and close loopholes. require standardized universal criminal background checks and mental health background checks at gun shows and through private dealers.
and then came to work at the obama administration a couple of weeks later where the president was decrying that kind of thing, saying that when companies come to america, especially to pay for their bailout, they shouldn't be having lavish bonuses. lou: thank you, shannon bream. turning back to the issue of gun control, our first guest says the president is sorely mistaken if he believes that he can amend the u.s. constitution by executive order. joining us is trey gowdy and it is great to have you with us, congressman. first, if we may, let's turn to the idea that this president, if necessary, will by executive order, constrain our rights. >> i can give you a long list of things to worry about. but this president and vice president shredding our second amendment because they think it is bleeding politically expedient is not going to be one of them. i find it shocking how little regard he seems to have for that document. he may not like the second amendment, he can take up with madison and jefferson and the fellows that framed it. but he is not going to run roughshod over the second amendm
at the obama administration's second-term priorities, at home and abroad. look for more disputes over the economy, foreign policy, defense cuts and gun control in the weeks to come. but for now, we take measure of the combatants. first, new treasury secretary jack lew -- a veteran of the clinton and obama white houses - who will succeed timothy geithner. >> jack has my complete trust. i know i'm not alone in that. in the words of one former senator, "having lew on your team is the equivalent as a coach of having the luxury of putting somebody at almost any position and knowing he will do well." gwen: so what does lew's appointment tell the senators who must confirm him about what comes next in our epic budget fights? david? >> i think it tells us that the president anticipates that this year will be a year dealing with taxes and spending and deficits. it will be the fifth year in which we have a trillion dollar deficit and jack lew has been budget director in two administrations. unlike timothy geithner, he has very little experience in finance. that was geithner's strong point. he ha
deportations, you can see the total so far during the obama administration, 1.5 million. for the entirity of the bush administration, two terms in office, we saw about two million deportations. and then in 2012 alone, nearly -- more than, rather, 400,000 immigrants deported, which is a record high. our next phone call is from mark in new jersey, republican. hi, mark. caller: good morning. i'm also a municipal chair here for the republican committee. i'm also going to be running for the state republican committee. i think the idea given immigration reform is absurd. we look at all the construction work there's these people have devalued over the years. who compensates them? we talk about equality and everything else and helping people. these illegal immigrants have destroyed more african-american communities because of the lack of jabs being taken by these people. they're devaluing our weages. you look at the drug problems that are across the country that these people are transporting, and then you want to give them amnesty and make them legal citizens? they've criminals. they've destroyed
credibility with kind of average americans so, if the obama administration could get them onboard with some sort of gun control and they would call it common sense, of course, gun control. that would be huge. it's unclear whether or not that is going to happen, but i think it's very likely that's what the white house hopes to do. >> you wrote -- you wrote in your piece on this. walmart cooperated with michael bloomberg. bloomberg is a gun hater. he wants to control all guns, i believe he wants to ban all guns. i wasn't really sure. walmart's not going to ban all guns. the administration's not going to ask him to do that. >> you're right. absolutely right. walmart is thought of as this conservative company. but as you know, larry, big business tends to benefit from regulation. and, in fact, walmart already complies with bloomberg's. he has this thing where walmart is already voluntarily complying with onerous regulations voluntarily. so if they were -- let's just pie in the sky here. let's say they came out in favor of closing the gun loophole. that means i couldn't sell you a gun, for examp
here is where we are. the obama administration knows that it's got a difficult fight on its hands. this is why the latest gun reform task force has been so wide reaching. the white house is hoping to overwhelm the nra by building a massive coalition of groups committed to change. it's the same type of strategy the obama team used in two presidential campaigns that, well, worked pretty well. the nra has a lot of power, no doubt. but the combined strength of all of the groups meeting with vice president joe biden can overwhelm the nra this time. biden says that he will deliver recommendations to the president on tuesday. the time for change is right now. it is a moment in history we cannot let spin to outer space and be gone forever. if they can't do it now, when can they do it? get your cell phones out. i want to know what you're thinking. tonight's question, will the obama administration get gun legislation passed? text a for yes and b for no. you can always go to our blog at ed.msnbc.com. we encourage you to do that. we'll bring the results later on in the show. joining me tonigh

napolitano to the obama administration. i lost governor sebelius. >> what does he need to do next then? >> one of the people that's considered and probably will wind up in the cabinet, no insider information, is jennifer granholm. the former governor of michigan, a terrific, smart, able woman. >> no longer in tv. >> no longer in tv. and i'm telling you, if i'm worried about who's in the inner circle, i want the number one person in the inner circle to be someone that, you know, is attuned with me and that's valerie jarrett. >> i'll read from "the washington post" and up all day and i want your incite. obama needs some binders of women. about all of the white guys, what a shame. not an outrage but a shame. a face of power that president obama has chosen to present to the country and the world with his second term cabinet pick is striking except for the african-american president at the top of the pyramid for its retro look, white and male. it's mad men goes to washington except peggy is leaving. i will pose this question that everyone asked today, as well. if mitt romney was selected or
on capitol hill to his work with the clinton and obama administrations. what we did not point out was his brief stint at citigroup. not something he often talks about. from 2006-2009 he ran the alternative investment arm. that division made its profits from shorting the housing market , betting against homeowners like me and you. while he was citigroup they took in 45 billion from taxpayers under t.a.r.p. two weeks before he left to join the obama administration he took, bonus. before citigroup payback taxpayers, and it was not too shabby, nearly a million. so more than just a politician and lawyer. he was a banker who took money from taxpayers and that against them in return. that is the whole story. his signature is gaining attention. even the president could not help taking a swipe at his questionable. >> he is going to work to make at least one letter legible in order not to debase our currency. should he be confirmed as secretary of the treasury. gerri: if confirmed, how will he stack up against other treasury secretary's? with more on this, handwriting analyst kathy midnight. welcom

, is in the heart of the obama administration, and he represents barack obama better than basically anybody. not only did they correct when he was white house chief of staff and budget director, but their values are aligned, and so this would be going right at the president who, as jeff sessions knows, deserves to have his own people in the cabinet. this whole presunmps that you object to somebody that's a brilliant nominee just because you don't like his politics, that's not the american way. >> welcome to the republican party of 2013. jonathan alter and jared bernstein, i wish we had more time. thank you. >>> coming up, a memo to mitt romney. the car guy. >> i drive a mustang and a chevy pickup truck. ann drives a couple of cadillacs actually. with the spark cash card from capital one, olaf gets great rewards for his small business! pizza!

at the most important post in the obama administration. the president nominated his chief of staff, jack lew to, replace timothy geithner. lew has been the budget director for both presidentses clinton and obama. he is viewed as a experienced and hand in negotiations but does not have strong ties to wall street. it is likely he will be confirmed by the senate. >>> the dow jones industrial average continued to rise on earnings news through the week. the s&p 500, in fact, closed at a new five-year high thursday. earnings season is under way, and dow component alcoa kicked off. profits in line at alcoa, while revenues were better than analysts expected. financial giant, wells fargo, beat expectations, as did american express. apple is said to be considering a cheaper version of the iphone. the iphone 5 costs about $200 with a contract with a wireless carrier. the less expensive version would have a plastic body. >>> the debt ceiling, the new treasury secretary, so will washington be an obstacle to the markets and the economy, or will washington actually be a help? joining me now, greg ip, u.s.
in the obama administration. the question is whether it happened in congress. do you anticipate a conservative congressional freakout here? other than from the predetermined one from john mccain? >> john mccain and lindsay graham and a few others may say it. very important to go back to the debt ceiling debate, we came to the edge of real financial crisis in this country. guess who was on jon stewart and stephen colbert, saying we are spending $120 billion in a country, and it's not good for america. grover norquist. this afghanistan war is not in their interest from a financial perspective from his work i think you really begin to see a quick collapse of conservative support. progressives and most independents already had a great deal of skepticism about afghanistan, but it's these debt issues that have really driven a real collapse, and there is a real support for iraq and afghanistan. anybody who supports an ongoing troop presence, and the mainstream to use, and lately that folks have tried to rile up chuck hagel. >> one last question briefly about chuck hagel. you and i talked about him be
by the obama administration whose lawyers said every minute counts and the alcohol number counts as well. >> so were there justices that were skeptical of that argument then? >> yes. absolutely. justice breyer pointed out in many jurisdictions today, police can get a warrant over the telephone but mr. shapiro, when his time was up to tee fend the warrant in these situations, justice alito did point out that often rural areas don't have a magistrate or a district attorney on duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week in order to look at the warrant request, and he asked, well, should all of the country operate the way new york city does. and mr. shapiro said no, but, in the absence of any evidence, getting a warrant a cumbersome and time consuming or that having the warrant or not having the warrant requirement affects the conviction rate you shouldn't dispense with the warrant requirement. >> does a case like this fit into etiological sides that you can, you know, compare to other cases or is this somehow different when you get into a fourth amendment search? >> sometimes the fourth amendment does
of its bunker. the near possibility, the near possibility that the obama administration might stop the easy sale of the scariest guns to the scariest people has aroused the slippery slope crowd. these cousins of the grassy noel folks believe that any limit on the wide-open market for guns and ammo threatens their own hardware. any reasonable action by the american people to stop the carnage is to these paranoids the first unfaultering step towards mass confiscation of everything from shotguns to daisy rifles. well, tonight we let you hear from the craziest of the crazies. my question, are the regular gun owners of this country, people who go out and hunt in hunting season, the people who shoot skeet, simply like to pack their own bullets, regular gun enthusiasts, are they going to listen to these nut cases or to joe biden when he offers proposals next week on background checks and high capacity magazines. who are the people that are going to decide this issue? i mean, the gun owners going to go with, the wild bunch or the town posse? david corn is washington bureau chief for "mothe
